To the Editor:

The letter (Veterans service officers available 4 days a week at Heights DAV chapter, Nov. 17, KDH) was right on the money, and I mean money.

In addition to the services listed in the letter, there are several additional service officers available in the area.

VFW Post 9192 has a service officer available three days a week. The service officer at VFW Post 9191 is the past service officer for the state of Texas.

Every post in the area has qualified service officers. So the question is, why do we need to spend money on a county service officer?

    DITTO on what Bubba has stated.
    After all every other county has an officer except Bell County, Why ?
    When its state law, and a benefit to the veteran
    This is where the veterans are at in the most proportion.

    The law requires it; that is sufficient reason to act.

    Further, many veterans do not wish to interact with certain agencies. This provides another outlet for these veterans to seek assistance, in addition to complying with state law.
